A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Back in Plaid

If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Jennifer Hills Blog - I think we all have to SQUEAL!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 15 of us in this hop - 13 different cards and 3-d projects!!! WHOO HOO!




I'm super excited to show you what I made with the November BACK IN PLAID PAPER PUMPKIN KIT - those little stockings are soooo adorable! 

Here's the kit:



And this adorable stamp set:

S-l640 (1)

And here's what I made with it! I added the SOFTLY FALLING embossing folder and some GOLD FOIL PAPER to the kit with some cardstock and came up with this pretty card. I cut the GOLD FOIL PAPER 1-3/4" x 3-1/4" and just cut it on the bottom to match the banner with the tree on it.



Then I got out my LAYERING SQUARES FRAMELITS and a little GOLD RIBBON to make this cutie. I cut the banners with the gold snowflakes on them to 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" and then used the scalloped square framelit that's 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" for the Elegant Eggplant layer behind each one.


The first thing that popped into my head with the stocking was to stamp directly on it! I used ELEGANT EGGPLANT ink with the snowflake image and I pulled my WHITE BAKER'S TWINE through the same ink pad to dye it purple to match:


I'm going to put a gift card in the stocking with some candy - I can't hardly wait for Christmas!

Great ideas! It never occurred to me to add Eggplant to the snowflakes. I love seeing all the variety on our blog hop.
